    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This recipe was adapted from Almost Nutra Grain Bars posted on this site (one of my all-time favorite bars!). These bars have a delicious chocolate-caramel filling, they are THE BEST!! the oat crust/topping bakes out tender and light.

      Very rich bar. Quick and easy to make. I don't know if they store well, as they were consumed by my guests immediately. Will certainly be made again.

      Kitten this is a wicked little treat. I loved that it was very quick and easy to make, with a crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside texture. The addition of nuts, caramel and chocolate make this a sweet treat not to be missed. Thanks for sharing.
